Points Named One of Canada's Best Workplaces, Again

Leading loyalty management company recognized for second year by Great Places to Work Institute®

Global leader in loyalty currency management Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM) is honored to announce their recognition as one of Canada's Best Places to Work in 2016 and one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Women. Presented by the Great Places to Work Institute®, the award identifies organizations that foster exceptional work environments and cultures that value the growth and development of their team members.

Points ranked #17 as one of Canada's Best Places to Work and also received the recognition as one of the 50 Best Workplaces for Women where the company ranked #19. This is the second year in a row that Points has been recognized by Great Places to Work Institute®.

"A dynamic company culture is not something that simply manifests overnight. It takes the right people with the right attitude, fierce passion and unyielding energy to create something extraordinary together," said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. "We are honored to be recognized as one of Canada's Best Workplaces and one of the Best Workplaces for Women, for the second year in a row. This is a testament to our team who, day in and day out, work to uphold all that Points is and stands for."

In addition to fostering a vibrant and people-centric workplace, Points continues to drive new innovations across industries and partners in loyalty management and mobile engagement. Using the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform, the company's flagship technology, Points remains at the forefront of customer interactions, making rewards programs more valuable and engaging. They have recently grown their product portfolio to include an industry-first luxury hotel redemption partnership with La Quinta Inns & Suites and a redesigned Delta SkyMiles Experience auction site where members can bid using loyalty currency. Last month, Points was also named one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers.

"Over the years, we've worked to build a collaborative and innovative culture that sparks ideas and inspires relationships," said Christopher Barnard, President of Points. "And that all comes to life through our brilliant team who make our company something special - this award goes to them."

Compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, the "Best Workplaces in Canada" list ranks organizations based on how well they embody the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Organizations are evaluated through an employee survey and an in-depth review of the organization's culture, business processes and HR policies. This year, more than 300 nominations were received yielding input from more than 60,000 employees.

A complete list of the 2016 finalists can be found in a Special National Report in The Globe and Mail and on the Great Places to Work Institute's website. For more information on the Great Places to Work Institute, visit
